Stuff And Clutter

A lot of people fall victim to “stuff and clutter”.

What do I mean?

Many people live empty, meaningless lives…which have to be filled with “stuff”.  The more “stuff” they have to show off, the merrier.

“Hey, look at what I just bought…”

“Doesn’t this thing I just put up in my house look cool?”

“I need more _______ , that’ll do the trick.”

“I’ve got so many projects going on right now, I can’t do _______.”

Stuff and clutter, stuff and clutter, stuff…and clutter.

It’s sad actually, that most people place more value on their “stuff”, than on their daily interactions with other people (i.e. they have to “text them really quick” because they are so busy).  They place more value on their past memories, than on going out and creating new memories.

More projects to do, more rooms in a house that seem like a nuclear bomb went off, all because they have to feel “busy” doing “stuff”…creating “clutter”.

It’s sad…really sad.

And before you think this doesn’t apply to you, think really hard first.  At one point or another, this applies to almost everyone.  What you do about it as a person to change the situation is what really matters.

Can you reach down deep and make the real changes necessary to be able to “stop and smell the roses” as Grandma used to say?  Can you?

For most people, the answer ends up being a resounding no. They end up being content with their meaningless lives full of stuff, and sans the personal interaction.

Are you most people?

What If They’re Right?

It’s easy to quickly dismiss one of those “whack jobs” who expresses an opinion about the Bilderburg Group, The New World Order, and depopulation.

There are other topics of course, but whenever someone brings one of those topics comes up on a blog, in conversation, or on a forum etc… what’s typically the first reaction to the person bringing it up?

“They’re a conspiracy theorist…”

“What a nut…”

And on, and on…

But I only have one question, and no, I don’t side with them because they don’t present their case very well…but…

What if they’re right?

Are You Living Life Like A Ghost?

Some people are friggin’ drones.

That’s right, I said it…drones.

And I don’t understand why anyone with half a mind would want to trudge along doing something or living life any less than what they want to.  But before you light off your email program to rip me a new one, know that I was a drone too once.

Going to the “9 to 5″…one that I hated…

Eating when “they” told me to…

Choking back the vomit of the “life” that they were providing for me and my family…

All because I was “supposed” to do it this way.  Well guess what rat race, I frickin’ won! 🙂  Joseph Ratliff 1  Corporate Grind 0 … game over.

So why do you live the life “you’re supposed to” ?

You go to school, an ancient institution that if it were a building, would be crumbling at every seam.  You go to college, what, so you can get a “good job” like “they” want you to?

Then you get that “good job”, and show up when “they” say…eat when they say…do whatever they say…all for one lousy income that’s worth far less than the life they are draining from you.

But the worst part is…

You keep fucking doing it!


Do you think “they” would think any less about your livelihood when the shit hits the fan?  Nope…”sorry John, but we’re needing to make some cuts, and it’s your turn to go.”  They hand you a pink slip, and out the door you go.

Come back to that same workplace a year later, and see if they care, even one bit.

So, what have you really wanted to do with your life?

(and it ISN’T what you’re doing currently, or you wouldn’t be reading this)

Think about that today.  Quit choking back the vomit of the life you’re “supposed” to have, and get out there to create the life you really want to have.
